Stream: Skeletonwitch "Serpents Unleashed" Title Track, Tour Announced

"Serpents Unleashed," the title track of the forthcoming new full-length from blackened thrash metal miscreants, SKELETONWITCH, is currently streaming at Emusic for all your wicked listening pleasures. The tune, which Revolver says "slays with melodic venom," and Emusic commends for its "750,000-mile-per-hour roller coaster of sound," is synced with video footage of the various formats in which the album is being offered.

Slay your ears to the sounds of "Serpents Unleashed," now playing at Emusic RIGHT HERE.

Commemorating the group's 10-year anniversary, Serpents Unleashed -- recorded earlier this year with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Isis, High on Fire), and featuring artwork by John Baizley (Baroness, Kylesa, Kvelertak) -- will be unleashed in North America on October 29th, in Australia, Germany, Austria and Switzerland on October 25th and in the UK and the rest of Europe on October 28th. Serpents Unleashed is available for preorder at SKELETONWITCH.com in CD, LP, cassette, digital download and limited edition 7-inch collector's box formats. In addition, you can now pre-order the album digitally at iTunes and Bandcamp and receive an instant download of "I Am Of Death (Hell Has Arrived)."

In less than two weeks, SKELETONWITCH will kick off an extensive stretch of live assaults beginning with a record release party in their hometown of Athens, Ohio. From there, the band will ravage their way through the states on a five-week trek supporting The Black Dahlia Murder. In select markets along the tour trail, the band will host Serpents Unleashed listening parties where one lucky fan who pre-orders the album at each event will receive a $100 shopping spree on the spot! In early 2014, teamSKELETONWITCH will join Amon Amarth and Enslaved for a North American voyage. Complete dates can be found listed below.

"All of the incredible essential elements of SKELETONWITCH are present: mad-gallop rabid-horse guitars? Check. 1920s madman submachine gun drumming? Check. Chance Garnette's bug-eyed, leather-larynx, rock-gargling vocals? Triple check. Stop-on-a-dime time-signature change-ups? You know it. God bless these maniacs - they've done it again." - Emusic

"...the defining moment for the band, the most assured record in their catalog..." - No Clean Singing

"...irrefutable proof that SKELETONWITCH is the kind of band that we can trust even with our eyes closed... their best record to date." - Ghost Cult

"The solid production, tightened instrumentals, and effective songwriting are the elements that elevate this opus to one of the top albums of 2013." - Metalholic

"...the band is more evil than ever and have returned with a creative, inspired, brutal and soul crushingly evil vengeance. Should you still be worshiping The Witch? Two words... fuck yes." -- Volumes of Sin
